I just recently purchased a used 2003 CR250, I was curious if there was any particular problems that that year/model bike is known to have, and what to look out for.

Any help would be appreciated.

It needs to be cleaned up a little, but it's in pretty decent shape. I thought that every year/model kind of had it's own picky parts.

The only one I know of is the airbox-to-boot sealing area. There are a few aftermarket kits available to seal this junction better and they're probably money well-spent since an air/dirt leak here will quickly ruin the engine.

Just get some hondabond 4 and seal it from the inside like i did. Mine didn't have any leaks, but i did it as a precautionary measure. The 03 cr250 is a rock solid bike in terms of reliability. As mentioned, just do regular maintenance and enjoy it. The jetting might be a bit finicky like mine was, but a jd jetting kit cured that.

Watch Out!

The main thing to watch out for is......not hanging on properly when you twist that throttle! :debil:

Have Fun! :cool:

The airbox doesn't leak on the 03' like it does on the 02' but it might be a good precautionary measure...

Mine has been fine.
